I'm a bit confused - looking to order from Smyths UK by Click and Collect. I have a northern address I can use (my friends). Would I put my friends name down or my own name down alongside the address ? I would need photo I.D. to collect it.

Smyths are the only ones here.

Currys and Harvey Norman didnt take any here last week so dont think they will tomorrow either.
Currys did take preorders in store.

I’d say if you’re ordering from the UK, Parcel Motel wouldn’t be any harm. They usually get to me the fastest whenever I buy from Amazon.

Currently have a preorder in Smyths to collect from the store but the idea of actually collecting it in the current covid times makes me kinda nervous. Think it would be dodgy to try and get a home delivery order tomorrow and cancel the first one?

Though Smyths probably wouldn't allow me to have two preordered at the same time anyway for those few minutes.

Stores were spotty as to which were aware of it but as the morning went on, they all seemed to cop on to it.

They were taking preorders all day but they went past their allocation at around 1pm. They took more after that but weren't guaranteed first day irrespective of whether they were telling people or not. Carrickmines for example stopped taking orders. Other stores took them after lunch still (even with no allocation).

I'm sure some of those post 1pm on the first day will get the consoles nonetheless with the new batch.

But if Currys are getting more, they'd be a good shout to try.

You'll be grand. Wear a mask, socially distance, wash your hands after you get it...... you'll be playing in no time!

Yeah, I'd be disappointed if they didn't have some sort of distance queuing system in place, knowing how busy they should expect to be on the day.
